New Halogen 3.0 supports 5 new HAL System devices and includes the new 512 x 512 audio channel Expansion Bus.
The new Expansion Bus surpasses any and all Ethernet-based control and audio transport solutions (e.g., CobraNet, Dante, and yes, even Ethernet AVB) since it allows HAL to do things none of these do – see this post for details. For Expansion Bus details, click here.
With these new products you can: spread HAL System rack-mount products between equipment rooms; design and install systems with many dozens of audio & control inputs, outputs or both; easily tackle simple to complex audio installations for multi-use facilities, auditoriums, churches, meeting rooms, retail, and room combine systems.
NEW HARDWARE TOOLS:
HAL1x – Drag and drop DSP Brain with new Expansion Bus
EXP1x – RAD and DR Expander
EXP3x – Output and DSP Expander
EXP5x – Input and DSP Expander
RAD27 – USB Audio Sound Card RAD – The modern digital audio I/O solution for computer playback and recording from a single computer.
